Default Turbo/downpipe flange and studs vs bolts.

I'm under the impression that the begi DP is a pain in the *** to put on or remove without taking the turbo off the manifold etc etc.

After searching for what seems like an eternity, I know that some people use bolts for the turbo/dp, because of this issue, and some people use studs. Obviously bolts are easier, but has anyone run into issues with using bolts, specifically while tracking the car? Loosening, breaking etc etc.

I was just going to run to the local hardware store and find the highest grade bolt I could find, I can only find SS 8.8s.
